I've owned 3 pair of thes headphones for about 5 years now, and have used them in the studio the entire time. The sound: Flat, not as in lifeless, but in terms of LF build-up. Balanced across the FR, hese headphones are good for tracking and critical listening at mix. Note: These phones need to be burned in for about 24 hours before they open up. I'd suggest playing whatever style of music you'll be doing most on repeat for a day or so. Also, they don't really do well for drums. They don't isolate very well, so I'd suggest getting some VF iso-phones.Feel: A little uncomfortable after extended use (I found them uncomfortable after about 6 hours straight). Well fitting, not to bulky. Note: One problem I've had is that the closing pads around the cans kept comming off all 3 pairs I have. 2 work arounds are 1) Superglue them back on, or 2) black electrical tape tohold them on. Very minor in the long run.Quality: Damn. These are indestructible. Mine have been dropped, thrown violently, crushed and abused for 5 years, and they are still holding thier own. One problem, which was a piss-off at the time is the removeable cable: the phones-end of the cable shorted. I decided to make my own end after this, and haven't had any problems since.Overall: Well worth the money, but as I said, a few things that need to be addressed.
I've tried many other headphones and these were one of the best for giving an honest and uncolored sound, compared to the others I have tried.I would recommend these headphones to anyone looking for an excellent pair of reference cans without shelling out too much cash. However, if you're just looking for a pair of headphones to "pump" your tunes through, I would look elsewhere because these cans are for reference, thus they lack huge boomy LF (bass). Also, these cans are made for the recording engineer and thus they just lightly grip your ears (for prolonged wearing periods). So they are prone to falling off if you can't keep your head from swinging around. But under reasonable movement, they perform just fine.A nice feature is the headphone cord. It is connected via a locking 1/8" stereo jack on the left ear and plugs into your rig using a 1/4" stereo jack. This is nice, as it allows you to replace the cord if it becomes damaged, which would be unlikely since the cord is high quality and would only break under abnormal situations (cut, rolled over with a heavy chair, cats, etc.).They are fairly light, I've worn them for 6 hrs straight before experiencing discomfort. That's impressive!A gripe would be the plastic pieces that cover the metal pieces connecting the ears to the frame can break off if dropped onto a hard surface.Overall I love these as a good reliable pair of reference cans.
I have owned a set of these for about 10 years. Yes, they've been around that long. That is proof of the quality of these cans. If you want a great sounding, easy wearing, long lasting set of headphones, these are it. Trust me, I still use these nearly every day. I've used the other Pro cans as well, and these are the best for the money when it comes to good solid refrence phones.
These Headphone are heavy sounding there not really coil speakers.They are flat computer speakers and they dont give detail on dimension orDepth.In other words your sound is gonna sound tiny if it digital and you'll have to drive everything way up on analog.
